‘Flesh’ is the New Testament term that refers to man as he is apart from God. The unbeliever is in the flesh. He or she is born that way.The Ancient Mysteries Used by Jesus to Perform Miracles

God expects the believers to know, believe and live and act as His Sons, like Jesus did and brought Him glory and honour from the earth.

They are the ones that should stand in His gate to answer or stand against His enemies.
